Dr. Alice Gooding Discusses Forensic Anthropology on CBS46 News
KENNESAW, Ga. (Oct 3, 2018) — Dr. Alice Gooding, assistant professor of anthropology at Kennesaw State University, was featured on CBS46 News yesterday discussing her forensic anthropology work with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI).
"Alice Gooding is a forensic anthropologist with the state and an assistant professor of anthropology at Kennesaw State University. She and student assistants are measuring bones and conducting other kinds of analysis to try to determine the sex, age at death, ancestry and stature of the people whose remains they have. They are also collecting DNA and small bone samples for isotope analysis. The remains are those of adults and children, some with trauma, others with no signs of trauma."
"For some reason the unidentified tug at your heartstrings a little bit because we are finally putting them to rest and we’re doing everything we possibly can technology wise, analysis wise, everything we can so that in the future maybe one of those advances in data collection can help identify them," said Gooding.
